Kind of hoping it adds to the runtime.
After running the betas all summer, it didn't feel noticable. Obviously, Betas are not always battery optimized so that's not a super great test. I suspect it won't be substantial unless you're the type to check screen-on time in settings.Kind of hoping it adds to the runtime.
That doesn't make sense. Surely an OLED pixel displaying dark grey will use less energy than one displaying white?It does if done right. If it’s true black, where the pixels are turned off, it does.
But if it does what some apps are doing (and this forum lol) where it’s dark grey, it won’t reduce battery drain.
I don’t think that’s the case. When they say “true black”, they mean individual pixels are switched off. If pixels are lit grey, they’re still on and will use energy. Not sure if it’s less energy than white pixels, but if you want to save battery it should be “true black”.That doesn't make sense. Surely an OLED pixel displaying dark grey will use less energy than one displaying white?
